Title: I Know A Chord Buried Into The Ground And A Tongue On A Cloud
Format: CD
Label: Haang Niap
Country: Japan
Price: $20.00
"Hasegawa-Shizuo is the duo of Hirotomo Hasegawa (Aburadako,Kito-mizukumi rouber) and Shizuo Uchida(Kito-mizukumi rouber, ex Shokubaiya,ex nijium). Central to our sound is Hasegawas hichiriki (a flute used in gagaku) and Uchidas bass. Our performances are all real-time improvisations with no-overdubbing. "I know a chord buried into the ground and a tongue on a cloud" is our third album - previous releases were on PSF and Tiliqua. Its a live-in-the-studio improvisation. Factory-pressed CD in a gatefold mini-LP style card sleeve." - Hasegawa-Shizuo

Title: Gene Packs
Format: CD
Label: PSF
Country: Japan
Price: $21.00
"Debut album by a new improvisation group consisting of Hirotomo Hasegawa and Shizuo Uchida. Both have a leather-bound folder full of underground back-story -- Hasegawa was the lead singer of seminal early eighties Japanese punk/hardcore group Aburadako (Greasy Octopus), while Uchida was a long-term member of Hainos Nijiumu medieval dream-drone unit. The groups instrumentation is highly unorthodox, placing Uchidas mysterious bass textures against the wet skirl of Hasegawas hichiriki, an ancient double-reed wind instrument whose haunting upper register tones are an unmistakable feature of gagaku court music. Hasegawa brings a bucketful of phlegm to his approach to the instrument, out-honking Zorns duckcall work by a marshy mile. Uchida also contributes some striking ichigen (single-string) koto. Deliriously psychedelic, fully immersive drone and oriental wind works in the grand tradition of Taj Mahal Travellers, Nijiumu, Marginal Consort and too few others." - Alan Cummings.

Title: Songs of an Umbilical Cord
Format: LP
Label: Tiliqua
Country: Japan
Price: $32.00
"Ltd edition LP of their 2nd release following their debute on PSF. Killer release if I say so myself. Imagine La Monte Young crossbreeding with Takayanagi Masayuki. The disc is made up out of 2 sidelong tracks that entwine around a minimal music aesthetic junked up with an improvisational free jazz like exploratory approach. The panoramic sonic outcome floats somewhere between the controlled burn of a detuned jet engine and the boundless fury of nomadic hordes on a rampage through the open Mongolian plains. Sucking in influences as wide ranging as Takayanagi, La Monte Young, esoteric Buddhist ritualistic mantras, Gagaku and a free-form psychedelic aesthetic, Hasegawa Shizuo succeeds brilliantly in resonating out a Dionysian vibration of harmonical tones pregnant with a pulsating intensity. Without a doubt one of the most interesting and intuitive sounds graced with a shamanistic sense of poetry to emerge out of deep subteranean belly of Tokyo. Still undetected but sure to blow headz worldwide. One time only edition of 400 copies housed in thicker than life jacket and high quality Japan pressed vinyl. LP only." - Tiliqua.
